But what would Buffalo have to add to Pominville to get Pavelski? He's a captain with 65-75pt skills (will be over that this season). Is a great PK guy, can run the PP and is a clutch performer having scored series clinching goals etc.
I don't think Pavelski solves the Sabres' issues. You lose in speed what you get in playmaking. Both are leaders. IMO, if Regier called DW for Pavelski, DW would put Regier over a barrel for more than Pavs is worth (Pominville+++). Pavs is not quite untouchable but pretty close to it. I do think that Roy should assume a second line role and if displeased should be moved. The Sabres need to search for a true 1st line center. Pavs is more a 1a/1b center, like the Sabres had with Drury/Briere.
